Return Of Darth Tater

OK, sorry. I am back.

Things have been very busy at work and all in all I have been pretty happy. That doesn't make for much Blog-Fodder and the lack sarcasm fuel makes it difficult to write in a properly snarky manner.

So, I guess I must share my joys. I am grateful for my wife and family, my friends, my job, my country and my God. I am blessed beyond what I deserve. My job is like what I had originally signed on for. I am given a task and I am expected to perform it. I don't have to play politics, I don't have to deal with people screaming that I didn't help babysit their tech enough and or properly. I don't have to get up and argue with people who have no desire to learn.

I just got back from our quarterly meeting where we were shown the results of the first half. For the first time in a long time, the chart shows us in the black (as compared with my OLD company which was always either just squeaking by, or in the red). I even heard the word "Bonus" mentioned. Our company leaders talked about "Products" and encouraged us to "Think about how we can show the customer value for what they are spending money on." This is wicked crazy compared with the old meetings where we heard how we were going to "Attack the vertical markets," and we "Don't sell products, we need to provide solutions."

It is nice to work for the PHONECO I remember.

P.S.

Don't worry, something will get my shorts in a twist before long and I'll go off on a tear before you know it.
